    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Many opportunities to transition between businesses given the size of the company

    Cons

    Corporate office extremely political
    Stuffy and uptight atmosphere with C-level leadership extremely cold and removed
    Scarce promotions, no culture for timely performance rewards and proper motivation, promotions are often given only if the employee puts an outside offer on the table, major disproportion in rewarding leadership for a team effort, performance evaluations are a joke and are always done after your bonus or raise for the next year is long determined
    Increasing focus on cutting costs vs. innovation and smart risk taking
    Common to meet individuals with some nasty values at very high positions in the company, which makes you wonder about the overall values of the company
    Out of dozens of division presidents, no woman and 90% white

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that in order to be competitive in the long run, you need to change the culture within. Advertising an open culture can create a prettier image for the company, but word of mouth will always be more powerful.

    I worked at Thermo Fisher Scientific full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice, friendly co-workers and opportunities to work with other departments. Culture, pay and benefits were great too.

    Cons

    hard to advance or transfer out of customer service department.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stereotype Customer Service Reps into just doing Customer Service work. They should have more career advancement opportunities for Customer Service Reps.
